.Welcome back  for the 6th year, Jill and Yvonne

Jill and Yvonne have done 4 Oxfams trailwalker's together and are  team up again for the 5th. We have had an amazing Journey and will be life long friends.

Welcome back Gavin. who is going to finish it this year after having to pull out at the 86 km mark last year. Gavin has unfinished business, he want to knock it off his bucket list.

Daniel is the newbie and the virgin of the team, not sure he knows what he has let himself in for. We found Daniel thought the lonely boots web page.

We are a very happy, loud team, who will chat to anybody and take lots of selfies. 

we have a reputation to keep, we have won best dress  3 time in a row. We plan to win it again this year.

We also have the best support crew, in the whole wide world, they have been there for us through the good, bad, tear and tantrums.
